Any news about the standardization of this LPVO so far??
They are probably testing it, and they have mounted it incorrectly too. The optic should only be mounted on the piccatinni section on the reciever, AR handguard do flex just enough to cause zeroing issue.
If they ever have to take the handguard off they will have to take off the optic too.

LPVOs cost a lot, also this is a 4x LPVO which considering it’s caliber is very less, Americans use 4x ACOGs on M4A1s shooting 5.56x45 NATO, while SiG-716 has 7.62x51 NATO considering which an 6x/8x LPVO should be better. But the P4Xi costs less than a grand so most likely will be selected.

Also the scope is mounted far away from the eye.(somebody pointed out that it was to clear the iron sights)Hope they figure it out gradually and use the 716 to its fullest extent.

LPVO is not just about magnification, it helps you in bullet drops, and windage far better than what an iron sight can do.
As for the infantry ecotechs with magnifier would also do a great job though not as good as a LPVO. But again the recoil of 7.62×51 is notorious to break sights. So it is to be tested whether the magnifier can withstand the recoil ( considering 716 uses th lmg rounds)

The reticle seems to be not that great, 4x isn’t some great magnification. 8x is something that should work.


ACSS is better.
